As I live the high life out of this Falcons koozie, I realize A. high life is incredibly underrated and B. the Braves are pissing me the hell off. Like who gets swept by a team named after a bunch of bizarre priests in the most american sport there is.
Has there ever been a more frustrating collection of players in recent Braves history?
No one seems to ever give a shit, especially our highest paid player, so why should I? I’ve spent enough of my life going crazy for Braves teams that were actually fun to watch. This team needs to prove their worth. Beat an ace. Hell, beat some rookie I’ve never heard of. Get a hit with the bases loaded. Hell, get a hit with a man on first. Stage some incredible comeback and show some fight – for god’s sake Freddy Garcia showed more in one start in the playoffs last year than we have all season.
I just got done reading some articles on what the Braves can do and how they can make the playoffs. It’s pretty damn obvious don’t you think? I used to be all for Fredi G, and honestly I still am. It’s not like it’s his fault Chris Johnson forgot how to hit and BJ Upton might as well be a janitor. But it IS his fault that he isn’t leading this team, he isn’t doing anything to fire up these guys like Chipper, Smoltz, McCann and Hudson used to do. (Hey Freddie I’m also talking to you). So, something needs to be done Fredi.
I’ve honestly been wanting to blog for a while now, and these beers and this team has got me to do it.
I tweeted it earlier, but if BJ is hitting leadoff again tomorrow or really in lineup at all, I don’t see any point in trading for Bonifacio. Start the guy who’s hitting .280 and has speed, isn’t that what the Braves have been missing since, like, Rafael Furcal?
Regardless, I’m sure if you’re reading this you are either as buzzed and/or frustrated with this team as I am and have had it. Suck it the hell up Atlanta, you better come to play this week. I want a damn sweep of the Nats.
